Sharepoint and ISA session timeout
I have an issue that I thought I had solved, but it keeps rearing it's ugly head, and any help suggestions would be greatfully recieved.
I have MOSS 2007 published through ISA 2006, sharepoint is configured with form based authentication, the web site is set with a session timeout of 35 mins, and ISA is configured with a web listener session timeout of 30 mins, as per ISA instructions. Authentication works perfectly internally and externally for the sharepoint web site, but sessions timeout after 10 mins not the 30 mins I have configured with ISA.
The problem that I have with this is that I am also using SIMS Learning Gateway, and staff have to log in from home to fill in the reports and marksheets for profiles online. I am getting complaints that when completing the reports on the web form, staff are asked to log back in, but the form data is lost on re-authentication. this is really anoying for staff who lose 15 mins worth of work.
I have tried a content editor web part that rotates through 3 pages on the sharepoint site, in a vain attempt to keep the ISA session alive when on the reports page. however this just displays the isa logon page once the session timeout. Whilst this enables the user to log back on without losing report data, it's not the elegant solution i am looking for.
Can anyone help?
